Update: Cleveland prosecutors say one of the two women James Box allegedly behaved badly with has a case for "unlawful restraint" if she wants to press charges. No word yet on her decision.

Via Cleveland.com, the details of just what a freaking specimen of gentlemanly honor Box is:

The woman told police she invited Box into her apartment for something to drink after he looked at the car.

Box grabbed her arm, moved her against a wall and suggested having sex with her, the woman said. After she said no, Box unzipped his pants and exposed his penis, she said. She then asked him to leave and he did.

The woman could not be reached for comment Thursday afternoon. Box was reached on Thursday, but he declined to comment about the accusations made against him.

Lovely.

The case involving the other woman has been passed on to Shaker Heights police. — Grzegorek
